According to a recent press release, “Dataguise, a leader in data-centric audit and protection (DCAP), today introduced its first Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) version of the company’s flagship product, DgSecure Detect. DgSecure Detect is a fully automated software solution for discovering and detecting all personal, conﬁdential, and otherwise sensitive data amassed by global enterprises. In use at Fortune 500 companies since 2007, DgSecure Detect has always been considered extremely easy to deploy and use—with no coding required. Now, the company is making it even easier with this on demand (SaaS) version, initially supporting Amazon Redshift and Amazon RDS databases. For Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers that need to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the SaaS version of DgSecure Detect is timely and will accelerate compliance efforts significantly.”
The release goes on, “The GDPR is the most comprehensive data privacy law to date with a pending compliance deadline by May 25, 2018. Sensitive data discovery is the fundamental ﬁrst step to compliance with most data privacy regulations, but the GDPR makes it even more necessary with its requirement to give individuals access to all personal data held about them without undue delay. The GDPR also requires some organizations to appoint a data protection ofﬁcer (DPO), for whom enterprise-wide personal data discovery and detection will prove to be invaluable. In addition, the GDPR mandates data privacy by design and by default, meaning that personal data discovery must be an ongoing, integral part of any business process that involves data—especially as it flows among users, between enterprises, across international borders, and into the cloud. Keeping track of it all manually will be impossible, and ﬁnes for non-compliance could be substantial.”
